gas stations for you purchase, they had outlet stores you could exchange them for items in their catalog) so cool...Didn't know a thing about it
until I was in my late teens. I started to work in gyms in 1979 and had the opportunity to go to work for Larry Scott at his gym. I worked with
him on and off until the mid-90's, we remain close friends.
